MDJH Community Garden

The MDJH community garden was revitalized by the Students in the MDJH LEARN program in June. What excellent green thumbs they have! Yummy! Looking forward to getting our hands back in the soil soon and continuing our work! Thanks to Murray’s Garden Centre, the ANC – CAYP and the Conservation Corps for your help and support.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to our returning students, and a big welcome to our incoming Grade 7s!

We’ll be opening our doors at 7:45am on Wednesday, September 8th, and it will be a full day for all our students. Normal dismissal time will be 2:10pm, with the busses leaving the parking lot by 2:20pm.
